Ruggie’s alarm won't keep ringing indefinitely. It will atomically stop after around a minute and a half.
This is not a design flaw, but an intended feature for a couple reasons.
- Ruggie is extremely loud, peaking at 120 Decibels. This is equivalent to a blender in your bedroom going off. You should have no reason to still be asleep, unless you are hearing impaired.
- Ruggie runs on 3 AAA batteries, if its alarm rang indefinitely it would drain these batteries rather quickly.
What if I absolutely need to prolong it?
If you absolutely cannot make it out of bed after a minute and a half of Ruggie's extremely loud alarm, then you can use advanced settings to set a second alarm to go off directly afterwards, or a minute later.
This can prolong the ringing to 1-2 minutes depending how long you set it apart. But we don’t recommend this, because Ruggie is designed to help users build the habit of starting their days early. Prolonging the sleeping and snoozing period defeats the purpose of using a Ruggie.
